What are my chances at the University of Chicago and Northwestern?
I'm really interested in a smaller liberal arts college, but I want to apply to U of Chicago and Northwestern because those are my boyfriend's top 2 schools, and I'd like to have the option open. I'm a junior right now, interested in communications/public relations. -4.26 GPA, but I'm guessing it'll go down to 4.17 or so by the end of this year. -I've taken every honors class possible, but no APs yet. Next year I'll have AP Statistics, AP Government, and AP Literature. -Next year I'll be interning for a radio station. -Member of National Honor Society; plan to be an officer next year -Member of Speech/Debate Team; plan to be an officer next year -Have done 2 school plays a year since freshman year. -2020 SAT Score; 600 math, 730 reading and 690 writing (I know the math is low for the average at these schools) What do you think? Also, I don't know if it makes a difference, but I have held down a job with 10-20 hours a week for more than a year.

I think that you should apply to these schools, work hard on your essays and try to get some good recommendations. but still apply to some easier to get into schools too. I got into U of Chicago with only one AP class my senior year, so more than that isn't required. my SAT was a bit better tho...

Include community activities and leadership roles. Offer variety. Other than that it looks pretty good. As always dont put all your eggs in one basket. Good Luck!
